I just finished Dragonseye, and there's a problem.

This book is set at the beginning of the Second Pass. There is no mention of the drum towers.

I know for sure that Todd McCaffrey's Dragonsblood speaks of the drum towers while Wind Blossom is still alive, sometime during the First Pass and soon after the emigration to the Northern Continent.

I think that either Dragonsdawn or Chronicles of Pern: First Fall mentioned or detailed the invention and inception of the drum towers, both of which were written before Dragonseye.

If they did, what was Anne smoking when she wrote Dragonseye to thus disregard her own canon with no explanation?

If I'm remembering wrong and they don't, what was Todd smoking when he wrote Dragonsblood to thus disregard his mother's canon with no explanation, and even base a significant part of the story in a setting that places the creation of the drum towers during Wind Blossom's lifetime.

That said, my trawling of the internets turned up no help on this subject, but it did reveal that another Pern book is expected for 2008. Ann was born in 1926. She's 81. Wow. May I have the fortune and the strength to make a comparable impact on the world.
